    Paul you always make me smile when you post these wonderful tracks of stuff I got to plasy live during my active years as a Dj from 1978 to 1987. I am also into posting Restored and remastered albums on http://www.discoconnection.blogspot.com with a friend who runs it. I recently posted a really cool and rare Brazilian Disco halloween gem there and I don’t know if you had a chance to grab it or not, I am sure you will enjoy it.
    It is recorded as full side A and full side B because the tracks kind of run into each other without enough room to spare. Thank you for you tireless efforts on Burningtheground and God Bless.
